Groin in­jury shelves Curry

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - Nba -

Stephen Curry has a mild to mod­er­ate left groin strain and will miss Golden State’s home game against Brook­lyn on Satur­day night.

Curry un­der­went an MRI exam Fri­day but the War­riors will wait a few days to fully de­ter­mine the sever­ity of the in­jury. Coach Steve Kerr said it doesn’t ap­pear to be sig­nif­i­cant.

“This doesn’t look like it’s go­ing to be a long-term in­jury. He’s dis­ap­pointed but it could have been a lot worse,” Kerr said. “We’ll just mon­i­tor his progress over the next sev­eral days.”

The two-time NBA MVP was hurt mid­way through the third quar­ter of Thurs­day night’s 134-111 loss to the Mil­wau­kee Bucks. Curry grabbed at his in­ner thigh af­ter try­ing to con­test Eric Bled­soe’s shot in tran­si­tion at the 6:50 mark of the third.
